HoHow to compile Linux dialog - "curses.h" missing ?


I tried native compile Linux dialog for Linux embedded device
and got "curses.h" error message.

As Linux dialog is already compiled and working as Debian .deb package (installed it).
What is a way to import curses.h from other package sources to work for dialog sources compilation in my case ?

What is missing and I was advised to look for
ncurses-devel package.
Unfortunately ncurses-devel has not been compiled as a package either.

Happy New Year
